    Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Families of Victims - Katie Pavlich

    Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Families of Victims

    During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

    The far side of the room, shown empty in the photo, belongs to the Democrats. The only Democrats who stayed were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier.

    It's their freaking job to listen to testimony. When did this stuff start? I never heard of a committee refusing to hear testimony.

    There is no truth to the rumor that they all fled to a neighboring state, checked into motels, and are staying there so that no one can force them to come back and do their jobs.

    No Democrat worth his salt would EVER do that.

    WHAT IS THE POINT OF THESE HEARINGS, BESIDE PROPAGANDA FOR THE HATER DUPES AT THIS POINT...a tragedy, of course. But these are a waste of time witch hunt and always have been, despite the idiotic RW BS and rants.
